  1. OK, but my question was how many cops get killed in Ireland? Here: There are actually more cops killed each year than blacks by white officers and 3 X as many whites are killed by cops than blacks. Yet we have this illusion by the libtards the white cops are out gunning for the black guys. Maybe that is what the media want us to see. Either way I'd suppose there are few cops killed in Ireland and thus they don't fear for their lives like they do here.
  2. Because if you have your lips on Obama's ass that is how you see things.
  3. Unfortunately we gave them confidence.
  4. Just for the heck of it I looked up the % black in Ireland. 1.42%. Interesting. So we have 59 fatal police shootings in 24 days in the US and wonder why cops are on edge. Maybe they don't want to be a statistic. We can argue gun control another time. The cop freaked when he knew the guy had a gun and thought he was reaching for it. Maybe it is a good idea to not tell a cop you have a gun and then reach for it like you want to show it to him. Or give that appearance anyway. If we took one of the people arguing against the cop here and put them on the street as a cop for a day in a big city they would be freaked out as well. It is like going into a war zone every day. Even if they have never been shot at they certainly know guys that have and they know guys that are dead.
  5. I don't think anyone is "justifying" what the cop did but the evidence was presented to a jury and he was found not guilty. Thus at the minimum there is reasonable doubt as to his guilt. How many cops are killed in Ireland?
  6. Here is the valid point. The cop didn't know either and told him to not reach for the gun. If the guy freezes or brings his hands out instead of continue to reach after the cop is yelling at him he is still alive. I agree the cop overreacted and certainly things could have been handled differently. But if the cop did not know what Philandro was reaching for..... now the whole scenario makes more sense for the cop and is probably the reason teh jury didn't think he was guilty. He says don't reach for it and the guy keeps reaching for something. So imagine if Philandro says, "officer, I have a permit to carry a gun and have one on me". Then gives the location of the gun and waits for further instructions. Instead it is like the guy is trying to show the cop the gun or some insane idiocy. Meanwhile the cop is yelling "don't reach for it". Philandro lost his cool as well IMO. You don't tell a guy you have a gun and then make any motion that might be construed as a movement to pull the gun out.
  7. Yea, outside of the muscles she looks like Jamal.
  8. With an even better cast around him and an improved defense Mariota doesn't even have to make a big jump to be one of the better QBs. It might take Davis a year to gel but we now have a vet WR for one year to really help things. Staying healthy is about all Mariota has to prove IMO. Thew game will slow down for him even more for him and I feel that will help his pocket issues.
  9. Bing Bing, Jamal has a new ID.
  10. Hard to say how Trump will do if he gets past his first term disruptions. Obama proved it doesn't take much for a sitting President to get re-elected. Bush as well.
  11. Horrific officer behavior
  12. Are you as gay as you look? Toss up.
  13. The coaching staff liked a 5th round rookie more than they liked Douglas or other WRs they could have played at the start of the year. On top of that he did have some production that wasn't bad for a rookie WR picked anywhere in the draft. The bashing of the guy is totally unwarranted. Sharpe was better than any WR we picked anywhere in the draft exceptt for Britt in the last decade. Sharpe is obviously not the answer as a #1 type guy and is unproven in the slot. Thus we drafted those two guys. We have a solid WR in Matthews. Still, that doesn't mean Sharpe won't be in the mix as a #2, #3 or slot guy and certainly will be competing for playing time. I just don't get the relentless bashing of the guy. He is not as bad as people make him out to be. Nobody is arguing he is a stud or anything. JRob lucked into signing an experienced vet we can depend on while the rookies get on track. Why did he do that? Because rookie WRs typically are not that productive. Oh, Sharpe was a rookie last season.
  14. Obviosly the cops intent was not to shoot an innocent person. He did freak out. No doubt about that. But this wasn't a cop intent on killing a black guy. As with all these incidents there is blame on both sides. How about putting both hands on the steering wheel, telling the cop where the gun is and not making any motions that might be construed as an attempt to use the gun? The core problem here is there is an issue with proper training, selection of the right guys for the job and other procedural issues. Maybe they should have the driver step out of the car showing his hands or something. Here is the illogical mentality. Just hang the guy because of the outcome. Never mind the evidence and jury's decision. And all these incidents should be tried in the court of hysteria and media.
  15. The biggest change IMO is we can dictate what we want to do based on what the defense gives us. We can take advantage of defenses designed to stop the run now. We can also play better from behind. If we need to open it up we have the horses to do so. Improvement on the defensive side of the ball should also help. I expect us to be similar to last year but have greater options in the passing game and also more opportunity to hit the big play. Think about the couple of long passes to Wright and more of that going to a slot guy.
  16. If Henry is truly "vastly improved"......holy crap. Unreal how much JRob has improved this team. Literally revamped the entire roster including STs. If Dodd can get over his foot injury we have three OLBs that can be a force. We even have a faster Palmer now to compete with Brown at NLB. The secondary went form total crap to looking like it is going to be better than decent.
  17. Oilerman is a confined psyco who is a fan on other team sites (one of his other favorite teams is any team Fisher coaches) and he really likes it when people die (treatments aren't working). One of his delusions is that he delivers mail. The government checks for his disability, in his mind, are from the postal service. Oh, let me add his roomate is some gay looking guy with a patch over his eye. Dresses like a pirate.
  18. Jamal reads "Dick and Jane" book, sees the word "secret", then uses thesaurus to find new word to use on Titans Report so he can appear to have an IQ above 65. Got to give you credit when credit is due.
  19. ALS affects about 2 people out of 100,000. So while rare it might not be statistically significant if a few NFL player get it although it is more rare to get the discease that young. There are studies that show the incident rate is higher in people in the military but they don't know why. Head trauma could be a factor.
  20. ahh using your thesaurus again I see. I'd prefer clandestinely but good job.
  21. Yea but was your aunt at Piggly Wiggly to gain awareness for transgenders or something. She was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.
  22. I'd be more worried about a team like the Panthers taking a look at him. The Browns are into dumpster diving anyway and Decker would want a mega contract to play there (they couldn't pay him enough to go to Cleveland).
  23. What if Decker said he is going to check a few other teams and take some time to think it over? The team is off now with nothing significant happening until TC. This isn't FA frenzy time either and no urgency. Having a nice visit and actually having Decker on the field during workouts to observe is pretty huge. Living in Nashville is huge as well. There still could be issues about playing time and such. What about money? Decker might have seen Davis running full speed and thought WTF. Not sure I want to compete with that guy Sometimes it is better to not apply pressure as a saleman. Give the guy some room and let things work out.
  24. The kid was never out of shape and slow. For a guy his size (6'5, 275) he moves very well and was even praised by DL for learning the OLB spot so well. .
